The nurse’s husband and teenage children will receive money generated from the advertising profits of Sydney station 2Day FM, whose presenters were behind the prank call. In way of reparations, Southern Cross Austereo (SCA), the parent company of 2Day FM, said it would establish a memorial fund to benefit the nurse’s family. The company said a minimum contribution of around £320,000 would be made.
Rhys Holleran, SCA’s chief executive, said: ‘We are very sorry for what has happened. It is a terrible tragedy and our thoughts continue to be with the family. We hope that by contributing to a memorial fund we can help to provide the Saldanha family with the support they need at this very difficult time
